Disappointing  May 27, 2008
This is the first critical review that I have ever left on this site.com. It is not one that I take lightly.

I purchased this book, and have read through it. It has proven an extreme disappointment. I anticipated an in-depth understanding of Danish culture and mannerisms. Instead, the book is pedantic; it glazes over topics with massive generalizations. Also, I was a bit surprised by a perceived political 'bent' in the book -- indeed, it appeared that the author was rather judgmental on a number of socio-economic aspects of Danish life.

This is the type of book that you would expect to find hyped in the 1950s -- short on content/information, short on a perceived, unbiased perspective. I found little useful information of use on "customs and etiquette." A travel book from a noteworthy company (such as Fodders, Rick Steves, Lonely Planet, Frommers, etc.) would likely provide you as much, if not vastly more, relevant information for your trip to Denmark.

Again, this was not easy for me to write. Simply, I felt such disappointment with the book that I felt it necessitated a critical comment.
 
simply the best of its kind on the market - Danish Culture  Jan 24, 2008
INTRO:
I recently purchased this book (pocket size) for myself as I am getting ready to visit and meet my fiance's relatives in Denmark (Danmark in dansk; DK for short). I have been trying to educate myself on what it means/feels/encompases to be Danish (important for myself and future family) and have been reading up online (wikipedia, visitdenmark - the official tourist site, etc.) and talking with friends and loved ones. This was the best book as such that I could find and understand & learn more about Danes (and their uniqueness apart from the rest of Scandinavia).

AUTHOR (from the little insert prologue):
Mark Salmon grew up in Ireland, is a Jurist and Educator. Has an M.A. in English Literature, and immigrated to Denmark in 1998, where he workds as a TEFL teacher specializing in Business English, and as a translator and cultural consultant. Has also traveled extensively throughout DK and Europe.

CONTENT:
The book is well organized (logical fashion), with a lot of information (relevant or trivia, but very contemporary) that is VERY UP TO DATE and outlined in the following chapters:

1) Land and People
2) Values and Attitudes
3) Customs and Traditions
4) Making Friends
5) The Danes at Home
6) Time Out
7) Travelling
8) Business Briefing
9) Communicating

While perusing the book before buying it, there were a few things that stood out and confirmed the worth of spending the money:
* very relevant and contemporary information on the CULTURE and CUSTOMS of Danes and Denmark today.
* very well written prose (not infused by impression and personal opinions, but rather of concrete observations and well-rounded living experience in Danish society).
* fun to read (each chapter has numerous sub-sections that are terse yet with a lot of condensed and relevant information).

CONCLUSION:
If you are interested in understanding the peculiar culture/life/identity of Danish or their countryland (apart from the rest of Scandinavia) shop no more. This booklet will save you money, time, and is also very entertaining. The Danes seem to have created a fairytale land for themselves. Learn how. (for my travels I'm going to supplement it with Frommer's guide, and Eyewitness Travel Guide on Danmark.
